HOPE FOR OUR BATTERED PRESIDENT

There is no disrespect intended in the title.  No one can deny he is being battered.  This is about why there is hope for our president.  But, true hope is anchored in truth.  There’ll be no Pollyanna pep rally here.  It looks bad, real bad. We begin by facing facts:

-We know that Obama and Hillary loyalists—deeply embedded in Washington—are working feverishly to destroy president Trump.  They are using their dark arts, not just on him, but on you.

-We know that a soulless media has discarded all pretense of objectivity.  They are minions of a mindless coup.  They are no longer capable of even thinking a decent thought toward Trump.

-We know that Trump is struggling to drain the swamp because some Republican Congressmen have stuck a hose back in it, recycling the swamp water.

-We know that Trump make-believers who once supported him abandoned ship at the first sign of trouble.

-We know that the forces behind Mueller and Comey will witch hunt Trump for concocted crimes and refuse to try Hillary for actual crimes.

-We also know that during this overthrow of freedom much of the Church naps under the influence of melatonin ministers.

And yet there is great hope for our president.  I am shouting this question in your ear: HAVE WE FORGOTTEN THAT POWERFUL FRIEND?

Once before evil rose, with its bloody talons on the throat of America, and relief came from an unexpected source: This plea from Benjamin Franklin:

In the beginning of the contest with Great Britain, when we were sensible of danger, we had daily prayers in this room for divine protection. Our prayers, sir, were heard; and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in this struggle must have observed frequent instances of a superintending Providence in our favor. To that kind Providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful Friend?

Here is our powerful friend: Prayer, real prayer, sincere prayer, fervent prayer, unceasing prayer.  Prayer will expose the lies.  Prayer will defeat the traps laid before Trump.  Prayer will shut the mouth of the lion, topple the Washington walls of Jericho, split the Red Sea of fake news, and raise the Lazarus church from the dead.

Our powerful friend is waiting to bring unimaginable help and shocking breakthroughs.

Can I reintroduce you to our powerful friend?  Consider these points:

1. Even if you are the only one praying, it can change everything.  “Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”  James 5:16

When Israel languished in Babylon under the lash of Nebuchadnezzar only Daniel engaged that powerful friend.  He set himself to pray and fast.  His prayer, his solitary prayer, moved Cyrus to fulfill the prophecy of Jeremiah and release the Jews after 70 years of slavery.

The angel told Daniel it was his prayer that did it.  Daniel 10:12 “Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words.”

In the New Testament, one man’s prayer brought the Holy Spirit to the gentiles.  Acts 10: 1 “There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian Regiment, 2 a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, who gave alms generously to the people, and prayed to God always. 3 About the ninth hour of the day he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God coming in and saying to him, ‘Cornelius!’ 4 And when he observed him, he was afraid, and said, ‘What is it, lord?’ So he said to him, ‘Your prayers and your alms have come up for a memorial before God.'”

2. Even if you do not know how to ask, the Holy Spirit will pray through you.  Romans 8: 26, “Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”

Think of that!  We don’t know how to pray for this national disaster, but the Holy Spirit does.  Our prayer language carries untold power to interrupt, and alter the affairs of man.  He, the Holy Spirit carries all power and wisdom.  He possesses the precision of prayer that totally escapes us.  He will commandeer our requests to the very throne of God.

3. My final point is the most powerful and encouraging: God told us to pray for our leaders.  1 Timothy 2: 1 “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior.”

Why would we expend energy on worry when we can pray?  Why would we sit paralyzed watching the news instead of utilizing prayer to make news?  You, by yourself, have the power to ask and receive, why would you delay praying?  God told us that He is pleased when we pray for our leaders.  Isn’t that the most powerful motivation of all.  Remember our powerful friend.

  1. Dear President Donald Trump I know you probably won’t even see this and I feel like I am probably nobody who can even make a difference but for what it is worth I am praying for you and your family and those around you it is so sad to hear that everyone is trying so hard to come against you and all the lies that are being told against you is just insane and never have I ever heard of any one President being fought so hard against any move you try to make that will help this country I have never seen such a mean and manipulative family as the Clintons and the Obama’s it’s such jealous hearts that they have and it shows how very childish they really are but I just want to tell you President Trump just keep on leaning on God and he will reveal all their diet and lies and you will come out to look and be the man God chose you to be I know that your courage and strength is far better than I could ever have and I know that God himself gave you this position as our President and I know that no weapon formed against you shall prosper just keep fighting them and don’t even give them an inch I am praying for you because I know in my heart God placed you in the White House and you shall remain there keep your head up and make America Great Again we love you signed The Shumate Family!! #keepthefaith

    1. Ellen, Beautifully and so humbly stated! Agreeing on all points in Prayer for our President. God called and placed him there. I hope somehow that God makes a way for him to see your post. It would bless him so. We must hold his arms up the battle is fierce. Blessings.

    2. Some of us are not known and may never be seen or heard of but we have been mandated by God to pray daily for this nation and her president and we have been doing it for years.We are non partisan and we are praying because our heavenly Father will have us pray and call down his will to be done here on earth as it is in heaven. Pray Until Things Change.Pray Until Something Happens.

    3. I pray everyday for our President. Everything that has been stated is exactly what is going. We need many many prayers to dystroy the evil that is trying to dystroy our President and our country.🙏✝️

  2. I love all your facts and the truth you present. Prayer is the answer. Prayer must lead to repentance, (turn from OUR wicked ways). I believe however that exposing wickedness in liberalism will undoubtedly expose the wicked Christian leadership at the same time. Hence the silence.

  3. I pray that God continue to give you Strength, Courage and Direction. I know we will see
    The Beauty of this Country flourish once again. With God on our side , we will see America great again!! Keep on trusting God . He will never leave you nor forsake you!

  4. This in a sense reminds me of the Book of Esther. With Mordecai, and Haman. And God always has a way in light of the prayers, supplication, and intercession to expose the enemy, and he will eventually swing from the noose intended for Mordecai. We love and support our President, and believe that our entire National history goes back to God’s Divine Providence. And ask as Abraham prayed for Sodom and Gomorrah, that if there be not just 10, but on righteous that God spare the land. Lord you know there are countless souls here in this land you raised up. Have mercy on us first as brothers and sisters. And help all of us to humble ourselves and pray that you heal our land in Jesus Name!!!

  5. Lord Bless this man, Donald J. Trump whom you have called into position for our nation as President, Thank You for this man and thank You for his family. Thank You for Your mercies over our nation and thank You for Wisdom and grace for his work You intend to fulfill through him. Fill him with a greater measure of grace and integrity and flip the agenda of the enemy. Psalm 92:7″That though the wicked sprout up like grass and all evildoers flourish,They will be destroyed forever”.
    Thank You, Lord for Mario and his voice to the body of Christ and may they arise to know You and the power that you have entrusted them with. In Your loving Sons name, Jesus the Christ Amen

  6. No weapon fashioned against President Trump or his family will prosper. Every voice that rises up against them in judgement shall be condemned. This is the heritage of the Lord! God’s going to deliver President Trump and his family from the snare of the fowler ! This wonderful President shall be delivered from all evil, as well as his entire family, in Jesus name. Amen!

  7. The constructs of the call and design to Make America Great Again contain a returning to the foundation and a new work held out to us, involving the tearing down and rebuilding of our infrastructure. Is it just roads and bridges or is His Spirit asking for us to allow Him to probe deeper? What is the infrastructure of America’s greatness?

    Natural connotations noted, “Make America Great Again” is God’s spiritual call to those with ears to hear and He trumpeted that call through a most unlikely character. Perfect, I think.

    The Spirit of God has been calling for repentance from His people for more than 5 years that I am aware of and this election has hastened that call. In God choosing Trump and putting the campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” into his heart, He has hidden His fulcrum and wedge to His purpose. He is setting the scales between His Kingdom and the call of His people and the kingdom of this world and it’s darkness. In light of uncertainty, I will expand on what He has shown me about the spiritual side of this “parable”.

    Given that nothing happens in this world without the Sovereign Lord signing off and ordaining it, and moreover, nothing of God is even understood in this world without him revealing it by His Spirit. What is the likelihood of two men being put together under a mandate to “Make America Great Again”, to return to our foundation and to rebuild our infrastructure, that when the letters of their last names are torn apart and reassembled you get:

    REPENT “E” NCE?

  8. What a Friend we have in Jesus!!!
    Jesus friend of sinners!
    Rescue the perishing!!
    Pray for the dying.
    Jesus is merciful!
    Jesus will save!!!
    Jesus I come to Thee!!!

  9. All my family and those I know are praying for you and are so thankful God is giving you a chance to join in His plans to answer the prayers that have been prayed for this country. What a privilege for you, your family, and all of us to be called into what God is doing. How exciting! When things are discouraging remember all of us who pray and are standing with you supporting you and our country. God keeps reminding us to humble ourselves, pray, and seek and trust our Father and He will heal our land. What a promise!

  10. Thank you for stirring the slumbering church! I ask the Lord to bless, protect, strengthen & guide our wonderful “GET IT DONE” President Donald Trump! Daily prayer goes out from my lips for you, Sir! In a House of Prayer in Michigan we intercede for you & your administration too. May the Lord lift you up when you grow weary & know that many stand with you, praying with deep hope & belief that God our Father can and will make America great again, and walking humbly with her God.

  11. As a South African, my prayers are also with Donald Trump and his family. Praying that God grants him supernatural peace in his mind and heart, that the joy of the Lord will be his portion, and that no weapon formed against him would prosper. I am greatly encouraged to see what God is doing in America, as the dust clouds of the enemy is only a sign that His Kingdom is greatly advancing in this country. May God make America great again as a country blessed by God and called to be a blessing to many nations.
